The ATGStores.com Image Matchmaker is exactly what it sounds like – a tool you can use to search our selection by uploading images of products you like that you’ve found on the Internet.
But, for us, it’s a lot more than that. It’s a chance for us to showcase some really cool image-search technology, and to get your feedback on how to make it even better. Here’s how it works, and how you can use it to find your favorite style.
Image Matchmaker Magic
The underlying algorithm is complex, but the function is simple: It processes images you upload and then displays products that best match those images.
Pretty awesome, right?
So, let’s say you find a picture of an accent chair online, but you can’t find anything like it in any store. Save the image on your computer or mobile device, then upload it into the Image Matchmaker and see what we can find in our inventory.
But wait! There’s more …
Image Matchmaker + Pinterest
Maybe you’ve already got a collection of cool pics on Pinterest, and if so then we’ve made it even easier – you can upload Pinterest boards into the Image Matchmaker, too.
Just make sure your Pinterest board is specific to the kind of item you want to find. For example, if you have a Pinterest board filled with images of your favorite kind of sofa, you can upload that and get a list of our items that match your style.
Optimal Image Matchmaker Performance
The Image Matchmaker is pretty smart, but it works best when you upload images that appear on white backgrounds (like the ones on the right). That way, it can more easily “trace” the contours to give you more accurate feedback.
Either way, though, it’s a fun tool to use and we hope that you do – try the Image Matchmaker today and see what you can find!
